Artemis

Synopsis:

On the Moon, women have fun while they wait to be illuminated by the sun. They play volleyball with Neil Armstrong’s astronaut helmet, they masturbate in the darkness of the cosmos, and constellations are tattooed on their backs. Sunlight begins to seep and the white surface lights up increasingly. Women come together and enjoy this solar bath. A beam of light shines on the bed where a girl sleeps, on Earth. The light disturbs her dreams; the unveiled girl looks through the window and discovers the full moon shining on her head.
